Many organizations in sectors such as oil exploration, space exploration and medicine deploy high-performance computing (HPC) systems to analyze data at far speedier rates than is possible with traditional computing systems. Jobs that routinely take thousands of CPU hours to complete on traditional computing systems can be done within a matter of hours on HPC systems. These HPC systems require access to the storage system simultaneously and, for this purpose, scale out storage systems best fit the bill. One such example is EMC Isilon Storage Systems that run on OneFS—a single file system that spans the cluster of storage nodes—enabling the data to be read simultaneously by HPC systems from the cluster nodes. The volume of data generated and analyzed ranges from terabytes to pet­abytes. As the data volumes increase, so does the challenges to backup the data well within the backup window. Most backup software solutions support system state backups. System state backup contains the backup of registry files and other system information that is required to ... Access >>>
